LOGLINE: A nice-guy tax lawyer who is cripplingly shy around women falls in love with a hardened Korean prostitute whose quirky, wise mother sees a match.
OVERVIEW: Zachery Rhymer, 29, a brilliant but introverted lawyer with a mild stutter, whose social life consists of gourmet cooking, chess and frequenting massage parlors, falls in love with Josephine Hwang, 22, a beautiful, street-smart Korean prostitute. He desperately wants to see her outside work, but she adamantly refuses. A chance meeting with Josephine and her mother, Rin, 51, who takes an immediate liking to him, changes their lives forever. This is the story of two damaged souls who find, not love but possibility.
